Happy Wednesday friends! Only two more days until the pup arrives
For this week’s Workout Wednesday I wanted to talk about feelings. You know when you feel all mushy gushy inside? Those types of feelings.
Don’t worry I have a point to this.. The other day I got this comment from one of my loyal readers Kath
Sometimes I feel awesome after my workouts. Sometimes I feel like I am going to die, but most the time I’d say I just feel accomplished.
I don’t really get a “runners high” after running but I do normally feel more relaxed, less stressed, and calmer then when I started. I also always feel a sense of accomplishment, especially after long runs. I think the fact that I can run 10 miles, or 12 miles, or a half marathon is pretty darn cool.
After my weight workouts, or cross training workouts I usually feel happy. I am happy to have fit a workout in that day, happy to have taken a break from my work day and sweated it out a little bit. These workouts don’t leave me exhausted like some running workouts do but they still have their purpose.
I tend to feel miserable after speed workouts, or really long runs when I didn’t fuel properly. With that misery is still that overwhelming sense of accomplishment because these are my hardest workouts. Sure they leave me crawling for my bed and wanting to avoid walking at all costs, but that total body fatigue feeling is sometimes pretty great.
Overall I’d say that how I feel about my workouts can pretty much be summed up by a quote Ali, who writes one of my favorite running blogs, frequently uses..
“You never regret a workout”
What was your workout today and how did you feel after?
